CLC response to the Forrest Review

This brief submission addresses only those aspects of the Forrest review found in chapter eight concerning land tenure, land access payments, home ownership and the Northern Territory Land
Councils. The CLC is also a member of the Aboriginal Peak Organisations NT (APO NT). The APO NT submission provides comment on a much broader range of issues and should be read in conjunction with this submission. Attached also is a detailed paper ‘Land Reform in the Northern Territory: evidence not ideology’ (CLC 2013) produced by the CLC which provides a comprehensive analysis of these issues in the CLC region.
